How do I get a contactless card?

If you're eligible, a contactless card will be issued as standard when your existing card needs replacing. If you don't want to wait you can visit your branch to enquire about ordering your card.

If you're a new customer, your eligibility will be determined when you open your account.

How many times can I tap a card to make contactless payments before being prompted to use chip and pin?

There is no defined number of times that you can tap a card to make contactless payments before you'll be prompted to use chip and pin. The prompt to use your card as chip and pin will happen every so often.

A charge of €0.20 will apply to any chip and pin transaction.

If a card becomes locked due to an incorrect pin, can I still use the contactless functionality?

If your card becomes locked due to a wrong pin being entered three times, the contactless functionality will also switch off until the pin is unlocked.
